I noticed that he's also had Porcellionides pruinosus in stock, so maybe it was an honest mistake. There was also another mix up with my order, some of the millipedes I ordered were missing. The vendor was sure he had packed and sent them, but there was one tub that only had substrate in it. He did trust me though and I got a refund. I didn't mention the isopods because I didn't have good photos of them at that time. It's still a nice species even though it's not what I ordered (and I paid too much).Yeah, there is quite a bit of misidentification going on with some sellers, and they are selling really common species off as the rarer Spanish species. One reputable seller was selling Oniscus asellus as P.haasi dark. Now I can definitely see the similarities between the two, but a knowledgeable person can definitely tell them apart, and the guy was selling them for crazy expensive prices too.
Sorry you got ripped off, can't believe the vendor was selling these as P.haasi, how could you even confuse the two?
